Insurance course subscriptions and payment options

What kinds of insurance courses do you have available?

ILScorp offers a wide selection of insurance licensing preparation courses, continuing education insurance courses and compliance-based courses. With an ever-expanding catalog of courses developed by industry experts, there are courses available for students of all experience levels, in all of Canada. To view a complete list of available courses and products, visit our course catalog.


Can I purchase insurance courses individually?

Yes. Most of ILScorp’s online courses are available for individual purchase. However, for best value, we recommend purchasing a Subscription which provides unlimited access to a group of courses for a specified time period. Users who opt for a Subscription recognize significant cost savings compared to purchasing individual courses.


If I purchase a subscription, do I have to pay separate course fees in addition to the cost of the subscription?

No. Included in your subscription cost is unlimited access to all the courses in that bundle for the specific duration of the subscription.


As an Alberta agent can I use the same CE course for CE credits for both my Life and Accident and Sickness licenses? Or do I have to complete separate courses for each license?

If you take a course from ILS and the certificate states that the course is accredited in Alberta for CE for both Life and A&S then you can use the one course for both licenses!

For example if you take 15 hrs of ILS CE courses and the certificates say the courses are accredited in Alberta for CE for both Life and A&S then you will have completed the mandatory 15 CE hours for BOTH licenses.

However, if you take a course that is only accredited for Life CE then those hours don’t count towards your 15 mandatory hours of A&S. And vice versa, if you took a course that was only accredited for A&S but not Life, you would not be able to use the course towards my Life CE.

Technical Help

I am trying to watch an online insurance course with videos, but they do not open up and/or work properly. What’s wrong?

One of the main reasons that your video does not open or play properly is because you do not have the right software installed on your computer. You will need to be able to run Java. You can download this for free at: http://www.java.com/en/

You will also need to have the latest version of Flash which can be downloaded here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

These are free downloads from trusted sites.

Also, if you are having problems opening a video course, it is often because pop-up blockers are preventing you from accessing it.

To fix this, try holding the control button (ctrl) while clicking the link to the course. This should disable any pop-up blockers you have.

Alternately, you can choose to allow pop-ups from ILScorp.

In Internet Explorer, you can do this by following these steps:

  1. Click on “Tools” in your browser
  2. Select “Internet Options…”
  3. Go to the “Privacy” tab
  4. Uncheck “Block pop-ups”

To keep your pop-up blocker but allow pop-ups from ILScorp, click on the “Settings…” button and simply enter “www.coursesondemand.com” and “www.ilscorp.com” to your list of allowed pop-ups.

If you are using Firefox, you can change your pop-up settings in the following manner:

  1. Click on “Tools” in your browser
  2. Select “Options…”
  3. Go to the “Content” tab
  4. Uncheck “Block pop-up windows”

To keep your pop-up blocker but allow all pop-ups from ILScorp, click on the “Exceptions…” button and simply enter “www.coursesondemand.com” and “www.ilscorp.com” to your list of allowed pop-ups.

Please note, our courses are not fully compatible with older web browsers such as: Internet Explorer and Safari.
We recommend accessing your ILS courses on either Google Chrome or Firefox web browsers. Both are available for free:

Firefox:
mozilla.org
